Each new receiver features an efficient and straightforward short signal path circuit design that ensures optimal audio and video playback by minimizing any signal degradation due to interference. The receivers above the AVR-1513 feature a full package of Audyssey audio technologies for optimal sound quality. Audyssey Dynamic Volume offers real-time volume adjustment; while Audyssey DynamicEQ improves a system's surround sound effects at low volume levels. Audyssey MultEQ (in the AVR-1613 and AVR-1913 (MultEQXT in the AVR-1713)) automatically sets speakers (including the subwoofer) to suit the room's listening environment and the speaker's characteristics.
